WEINWISSER: "Delikates rotbeeriges Bouquet, getrocknete Küchenkräuter, helles Graphit und Walderdbeeren. Am sublimen trainierten Gaumen mit seidiger Textur, balancierter Rasse und engmaschigem Tanningerüst. Im gebündelten feinaromatischen Finale Preiselbeere, Estragon und dunkle Mineralik. Auf dem gleichen Niveau wie 2019 und 2018! 2029 – 2047."
FALSTAFF: "Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Frische Herzkirschen, Zwetschken, etwas Nugat und Orangenzesten, einladendes Bukett. Saftig, reife Pflaumen, dezenter Säurebogen, feine Fruchtsüße, bereits entwickelt, ein charmanter Speisenbegleiter."
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Quite floral in nature, the wine is elegant, fresh, soft, and silky. The fruits are vibrant, fresh, and supple, finishing with black plums, espresso, chocolate, and minty nuances. Drink from 2025-2045."
JAMES SUCKLING: "This is meaty and structured with firm tannins and deep dark fruit underneath. Impressive volume and length. Full-bodied and long. Very cabernet franc here. Could be best ever."
THE WINE ADVOCATE: "A blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc (vinified with some whole bunch), the 2022 La Tour Figeac bursts with aromas of plums, raspberries, orange zest, spices and smoke. Medium to full-bodied, suave and elegant, it's a seamless, lively and perfumed wine that will delight Bordeaux purists."
JEB DUNNUCK: "A pretty, elegant, forward effort (which is what this terroir always seems to yield), the 2022 Château La Tour Figeac has lots of up-front red and black fruits that give way to more tobacco, loamy soil, and baking spice-like nuances with time in the glass. It's not massive but shines for its balance and complexity, and it has ripe tannins and is loaded with charm. It should drink nicely right out of the gate, yet I suspect it will have 15+ years of prime drinking. Tasted multiple times with consistent notes."
LISA PERROTTI-BROWN: „The 2022 La Tour Figeac, 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, is deep garnet-purple in color. It slowly emerges with fragrant notes of kirsch, wild blueberries, and redcurrant jelly, leading to suggestions of rose oil and cinnamon toast. The medium to full-bodied palate is elegant and graceful, with well-knit acidity and soft tannins, finishing perfumed."
DECANTER: "Rich and beautifully textured, this has nice appeal with subtle density to the concentrated fruits but with fine and firm tannins that give a cool refreshing aspect. Doesn't quite give the excitement and vibrancy of some, but this is really well worked, clearly defined and detailed with balance and a push of fruit. Loses a bit of punch on the finish with some stalky, herbal notes."
